The SpaceThe Place:
The place that you’ll be staying is located in the ‘Khuri’ village which was founded by my forefathers. The mantle of keeping the village up and putting it up on the Tourism Map has been passed on to the current generation which is the 7th one of the royal family of Khuri. It is located on the country side road and the famous Sand dunes of ‘Khuri’ are at a distance of just 2 kilometers. My purpose of starting this place was to make an oasis in the desert area and that is what has been driving me for the past 5 years. The surrounding desert village ‘Khuri’ is well known in Tourism in Jaisalmer and all the credit for that goes to my forefathers especially my Father (Shri Bhagwaan Singh Sodha) for establishing it as a Tourist destination and also establishing the village in the modern times.
The room shown here is a Swiss Tent having a “HABUR FOSSIL” stone bed which is very rare since the foundation contains traditional Jaisalmer Fossil stones (Trust me, it was a task getting them here from mines of Village Habur which is 80 kms from Jaisalmer!). The mattress is 10 inch thick spring/comfort mattress which will give you the best sleep of your life (I can bet you on that!). The room also has a verandah with distinctive designed rocking chairs for your relaxing comfort. All the furniture in the room right from the desk/workspace to the luggage rack and the dressing table is made from antique wood. The attached bathroom has access to Hot & Cold water with European Style Seating Pot. There are bedside lamps for your reading comfort.
My place is situated in a desert village but I have tried my best to keep it lush green with plantations from different parts of India such as a Mango plants, Pomegranates, Dates and many other varieties of flowers (I have flowers in the desert, can you believe that?). The village surrounding us has a population of 2500 people so you’ll experience peace like you have never seen it before. Also, since my place is away from the hustle-bustle of the city life, pollution is something that we don’t have to deal with (So that means a clear night sky and the stars sprinkling stardust on you!). This also means that you can walk around freely in the village and nobody will disturb you (Coz everyone will be fast asleep!). The lighting around my place is something that enhances the beauty all around and also the water fountain (I have that, you know!) is something that shines bright in the dark. Also, the dunes are just a 2 km distance away from my place
